If Cyrus' past behavior is any indication (remember when she appeared to light up a joint on stage at the 2014 EMAs?), there should be plenty of shenanigans in store when the MTV EMAs go down on Oct. 25 in Milan, Italy. As for the trifecta's Best Female competition -- Ellie Goulding and Rihanna round out the list nominees.
Swift could have an edge, though. The 25-year-old is up for a record-breaking nine nominations this year (Rihanna previously held the record with eight at the 2012 ceremony in Frankfurt, Germany) including Best Song, Best Video and the brand new Best Collaboration category.
Hot on her heels is Justin Bieber, who is nominated for six EMAs including Best Pop, Best Male and (questionably, in our opinion) Best Look.
